Summer has officially come to an end (at least by calendar standards), but that doesn't mean we have to completely relinquish all the ways the warm weather benefitted our beauty routines. Sun-kissed skin and a glowy complexion are things we certainly don't mind carrying with us into the fall. Luckily, that lit-from-within, post-vacation look can be maintained (and recreated) without sun, saltwater, or sand.

With the right products, there are plenty of ways to extend your summer glow. From oils that keep you looking dewy, scrubs that eliminate dullness, and serums that restore a pink-y glow to your cheeks, we found 'em all. If you're looking to keep your summer radiance going well after Labor Day, here are seven products to help you do just that.

For Sun-Kissed Skin

For an extra boost of sun-kissed color (and nutritious ingredients that feed and protect your skin) this serum is a no-brainer for daily use. It gives you a subtle, natural-looking tan while also serving up numerous benefits for your skin—fighting fine lines and wrinkles, evening skin tone, and doing away with dullness.

For a Glowy Finish

For Summer-Morning Cheeks

This new palette may be designed for fall, but its punchy hues are just the thing to keep that summer warmth in your cheeks, even when the sun sets early. A peach coral, strawberry pink, and golden apricot will keep your complexion looking bright whatever the weather.

For a Smooth, Gleaming Body

This multi-tasking, smoothing scrub and mask will keep your skin looking fresh and feeling smooth, even as the colder temperatures begin to take a toll.
